Beta, Lite and Premium details:
This is currently an early beta, bugs are present and features are still missing. Loyal beta users will be upgraded to the premium version automatically (in app) will require a google account authorization when it becomes ready (oauth to an appengine site). Once qicr lite leaves beta, it will be restricted to 3 open tabs or tabs can be unrestricted if one wishes to see ads. The premium version will be sold as a separate app. In addition to all of this, the app itself will be open-sourced, so those too cheap to pay for a Premium version can build it for themselves.

The best irc client for android.

The Best a few bugs though. If you have 2 channels with the same name but one has double ##'s, only one shows up, channel joining isn't too good either. but other than that this client is awesome!

Good effort, brilliant ideas... but... I have to confess that I'm dissapointed with this IRC client, but I'll continue using it anyways. Simple to use as an umbrella, good. But quite unfriendly at the beggining, bad... Fast as a plane, good. Complex to set up servers, no "big-ones" list to help", bad... And then... the widget... Gosh, it is amazing to have a widget that gives you straight access from the home screen on the phone... But again the implementation is bad... too bad... why a pop-up window to write on the channel?? Could be implemented a lateral bar for the rest of the people in the channel rather than pressing the magnifier button a million times??? I hate it and I love it... I'll keep it, but please... Improve it! All the best!

Never connected. I gave 2 stars for layout and options. Too bad it never connected. Always said it did, though.

capable, but.... although this is a more controllable/customisable client than some, it sadly doesn't enable copy of text from bot results to paste in channel rendering it useless to me :(
